Three Passes Trek with EBC

Work in progress, but the basic paremeters are this:

Kathmandu to Jiri or Salleri by ground transport
trek to lukla
from lukla I plan to take the three passes with EBC
back to lukla and first step in reverse

I plan to do as many side trips along the three pass loop as possible

  1. Hi jacek
    Is your date fix? I’m lso planning this route in April.

    • No, its not fixed yed, I’m looking at 25-day windows beginning in March. I’m flexible, but main considerations are weather and cost. I will have to factor in time in Kathmandu to get gear rentals and paperwork, but I plan to check out the city after my trek.
      How about you?

  2. Hey I plan on trekking just after Holi, that is around the first week of March. I’d like to join you, since I’m a solo backpacker. Do inform me if you’re interested

    • Holi falls on March 2? Yeah, let me know your timeframe.

  3. just posted a similar trek plan. Much like Hansatanu, I am solo backpacking. Please tell me if you are interested. Hansatanu, we could correspond as well.

    • What’s your timeframe? Are you going to Holi in India and then to Kathmandu overland?

  4. No, I am flying into Kathmandu on March 2. Spend 1 day pulling together my tims card and either:
    flight to/from Lukla on 3/4 – 3/28
    alternate route (flight or otherwise to Phaplu)
    and fly back on the 28 to Kathmandu to fly home on the 30th.
